Three Tips for Hiring San Diego Wedding Transportation

It’s hard to decide on your wedding vendors, and transportation is no exception to this fact. Many people who are trying to hire wedding transportation haven’t ever done it before, and that can make the process that much more intimidating. We are here with some information to think about when you’re searching for the best limousine or party bus for your wedding. These hints will certainly guide you to finding the best transportation solution. If you need more details, head over to


Consider sizing up

Did you know that transportation companies don’t set the size of their vehicles? It’s set by the state department of transportation who only uses a guideline of about fourteen inches for each seat. You don’t need to pull out your tape measure to know that most adults take up more room than that! This is especially true for weddings where ladies might be wearing full skirts. Plus, you might want to invite your photographer and videographer on board to capture all of those moments shared en route to your wedding day destinations. For all of these reasons, you can’t go wrong with sizing up your wedding vehicle.


Make sure you aren’t getting scammed

This is easier said than done! However, if you’ve never reserved transportation in the past, this is a particularly important point because you don’t want to make a naive decision going with the lowest price only to be disappointed. We’ve heard a lot of stories about couples booking the lowest price and not following up with a visit to the companies garage. If you don’t go view the vehicle, you don’t know what you’re getting. This could result in a different vehicle showing up, one that needs maintenance, or no vehicle at all! You will save yourself a lot of heartache by doing the proper research.


Book as soon as you can

Your transportation vendor should be the decision that follows your venue reservation. You want to book as early as possible because wedding season is the busiest time of year for these companies. If you wait, you’re risking not being able to get the specific vehicle that you’re interested in. When you book early, not only do you get the best selection out of what is available, but you’ll also get the rate that is currently set. Transportation companies are known to raise their prices, especially when they’re experiencing high demand, so it’s always a good idea to lock that in when you can!

What Happens If It Rains?

Do not let rain devastate your outdoor wedding or ANY outdoor event. If you do not “Plan for Rain’ you are placing the success of your event and the safety of your event in harms way. So, if you are planning a beautiful outdoor wedding, please make sure that you are proficient in these steps:

  • Get the “” app on your mobile device and learn how to interpret its moving map. The number one problem I see is people not knowing how to understand what a storm is going to do. This is inexcusable.
  • Have a Tent. This will also help your guests and vendors deal with all elements including blazing direct sunlight. If Our San Diego DJ company is placed in direct sunlight often and our equipment and staff basically melt.
  • Take every umbrella your immediately family owns. If you take an umbrella it won’t rain, if you leave it at home expect to get wet. Having 20 or so umbrellas on hand helps your ushers with the elderly and any group that may be caught out in a storm. Grab a couple of boxes of over sized garbage bags, these will become waterproofing for everything. Get the largest size that you can find!
  • Have an understanding that you must evaluate severe weather as well and move your group indoors. Rain is one thing when raindrops are pouring on your guests as they scramble for shelter, imagine those raindrops as golf ball sized hail. This would create a horrible situation if these guests are left defenseless in the path of a storm.
  • Consider purchasing a Special Event Insurance policy.
  • Dedicate a member of your immediate family to keep an eye on the radar. As your DJ, we watch closely the radar as  A.) We don’t want your wedding ruined and B.) Selfishly we have several thousand dollars worth of electrical equipment that is ruined by even a drop.

Do NOT let a 15 minute rain shower effect the rest of the evening. I have seen Brides and Party planners panic at the sight of rain and try and “beat” it by moving the ceremony up 10 minutes, only to have everyone monsooned on and a very upset group of people. What if instead of the above scenario scenario, everyone came inside, let the shower move through, wipe down the chairs, everyone has a seat, the ceremony begins with a big rainbow above. Which of these sounds best to you???

I hope this helps some of you planning outdoor events. I do not want to scare you, I want to prepare you. Believe me, my experience with rain disasters is a very scary thing that you do not want to see! No matter what happens, do NOT stop smiling!
